PSALM 30

(1a)  A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.

A  1b  I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

B  2  O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

C  3  O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

D  4  Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

E  5  For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

F  6   And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

E’  7  LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

B’ 8  I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

C’  9a  What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?

D’  9b  Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

A’  10-12  Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper. Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
